The museum named in honor of Archbishop of Krakow cardinal Karol Wojtyla.

Museum was founded in 1906 on the initiative of the Krakow Archbishop cardinal Jan Pusina. At the beginning Museum was located within the Wawel Castle and has been in the stage of formation of a full-fledged Museum for the long time. After the death of the art historian and Director of the Museum of priest Tadeusz Krushinsky in 1959, Museum moved to a former Augustinian monastery with the Church of Saint Catherine of Alexandria and Małgorzata on Augustinian Street. Museum was located in that building until 1994, when its congregation accommodated two buildings on the Canonical Street, one of which bears the name of "Dziekanski House" and the other "The House of St. Stanislaus".

Official opening of the Museum took place on May 5, 1994 with the participation of the Krakow Archbishop František Maharsho.

Currently, the Museum exhibits works of sacred painting, sculpture and applied art of XIII—XIX centuries. Museum also organizes temporary exhibitions of contemporary sacred art. The Archdiocesan doubles as a small but well-presented showcase of beautiful sacral art, some dating back to the 13th century.

Be warned that exhibition will only hold the attention of true papal enthusiasts, and visitors can expect to be tailed by over-zealous curators.

Male Museum, probably a holiday for some, because it contains Souvenirs (for example, diplomas, gifts from the glow of countries) John Paul II, a rich collection of vestments, insignia of Queen Jadwiga and interesting malowidla and sculpture. The Museum is located in buildings No. 19-21. Building No. 21, also known as House Dziekanski in it Karol Wojtyla lived as a Bishop. Note: the Museum is forbidden to make photos only when you have purchased the footage for $ 5,...

Uwaga: w muzeum wolno robic zdjecia dopiero po wykupieniu opcji fotografowania za 5 zl...

A cozy Museum, with rich collections of Gothic and Renaissance works as well as contemporary Souvenirs that remind us of Pope John Paul II.
I recommend heartily! :)

Kameralne muzeum, ale z bogatymi zbiorami gotyckich i renesansowych dzieł oraz ze współczesnymi pamiątkami, które przypominają nam Papieża Jana Pawła II.
Polecam serdecznie! :)
